Sea anemone with labradorite and barnacles
These beautiful creatures are found in many rockpools around the coastline of The Gower Peninsula . Anemones adapt to the sometimes harsh habitat on the rocks by retracting their tentacles and closing their mouths when the tide goes out, protecting themselves from the sun and wind. When the tide returns the waves crashing over them stimulate the tentacles to open, ready for the new arrival of food brought in by the tide. Pa-pa's solid silver sea anemone with barnacles has a labradorite cabachon set alongside it.
